Improved Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAATechnology

Smooth Lines Make the Difference Between Itty Bitty, Low-Quality Graphics and Smooth, Realistic Graphics

MSAA smooths out the jagged edges of a curved object. A black curved line on a white background displayed on a computer screen will have some jaggedness along its edges due to the inherent limitations of using discrete pixels to display the image. Anti-aliasing smooths out this jaggedness by filling in the white spaces between the jagged edges with varying shades of gray which gives you the smooth soft shadows, crisp sharp lines of buildings, and crisp tiny details in clothing that make your experience truly realistic.

Partially Resident Textures PRTTechnology

Radically Change the Detail of Your Games From Flat to Realistic

Even in the latest titles, gamers may have noticed that games often reuse or repeat textures, particularly on the ground or in background scenery such as mountains or trees. This is because increasing the physical size or number of textures in a game can have a negative impact on the performance of a GPU. PRT is a radical technology that hopes to break this cycle.

5 out of 5 eggs$$ + Quality = 5 Eggs

Pros: This card compares with the Nvidia GTX 660 and is on par with results from various testing applications.

Cons: Power consumption is high compared to other cards that are similar in performance, but that does not hurt this review at all.

Other Thoughts: This card is spectacular! I ended up paying (after rebate) 125$. For the price and performance I am getting, it's a GREAT buy. I did not have any issues with the rebate. Please read and make sure you select the proper video card if you are sending in for the rebate. Look for the model number, not just R9 270. There are a couple R9 270s on the rebate form, so be careful. I highly suggest this card, especially if you can get a great deal on it like I did.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review. We appreciate the positive feedback.

4 out of 5 eggsXFX R9-270 core Will not run 3 or 4 monitors without extras

Pros: good mid tier card, bought for price point, casual gaming, and support. Description states that it will run 4 monitors, however it appears that it requires an active display port converter to even run 3 monitors, all 3 of my monitors have dvi-d, vga and hdmi inputs available. To run 4 I believe you need a $100 mst hub. for 3 monitors an approx. $30 active adapter. Nowhere in the specs or description was this mentioned by XFX. I have not yet had the time to call XFX tech support but some research shows this practice is both common and rampant among card mfg's. Nowhere in the XFX's R9-270 card documention does it mention the need for other equipment to run 3 or 4 monitors. I would hope that XFX amend this practice and rises above the competitors practices.

Cons: see in pros, poor documentation, added equipment needed to run 3 or 4 monitors

Other Thoughts: XFX, You need to rise above the others and be the leader of the pack, not one of the pack. as someone else said elsewhere, being able to pick ur own tech level is somewhat bad. for the record, I have a degree in electronics engineering technology, this is my 5th personal computer build over time. I worked for Lockheed Missile & Space for 5 years and Applied Materials for 2yrs... so I gave myself 4 eggs on tech knowledge.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review. This is a typo carry over from what appears to be the 270x. I will have it updated.

We appreciate the kind words. If you have any questions, please let us know.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: cheap

great card when they don't break

5 out of 5 eggsGreat one!

Pros: A great card that has been running smoothly for the past month or so. Been a great value for me and I'm didn't go with a longer and more expensive 280-type model.

Cons: I too got rejected on the rebate because the UPC on the box did not match XFX's offer. I didn't bother to fight it because I can't "re-send" in a different UPC I don't have.

Other Thoughts: XFX makes great cards, this is my 2nd or 3rd for sure, would buy again.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card..Bad rebate experience

Pros: Great card...plays all the games that I play at an Ultra setting with no issues.
Newegg's service and shipping are terrific!

Cons: Rebate program: I sent in the paperwork along with the Newegg invoice. I get an email stating I am missing documentation - no legible invoice, receipt, or packing slip. At the bottom of the email it states to email or call with questions. So, I email XFX to find out what the issue is. I get an email back stating I have to call. (runaround?) I call XFX and speak with a rep that puts me on hold for about 5 min and then tells me the systems are down and that I need to call back later. (runaround?) So I gave up. Using a rebate to get people to by your product with no intent to issue the rebate is wrong.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thank you for the great review! If you are still having rebate issues, please let me know and i will sort it out myself. Please send the rebate tracking # email or denial to...

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing bang for the buck!!

Pros: -can handle all my games on high settings.
-2GB DDR5.
-Newer graphics card for only $160 (what I paid for it)
-Doesn't overheat when fan is at only 25%
-supports 4K. (future-proofing)

Cons: -Too much shading. (can be good or bad depending on the game)
-I'm having a hard time forcing vsync on some games so I had to use D3D Overrider.

Other Thoughts: -Payday 2: high settings with vsync - steady 60fps with minor frame drops
-LoL: Very high settings w/ vsync - steady 60fps with minor frame drops
-Civ 5: High settings w/vsync - steady 60 fps with minor frame drops when scrolling past map

5 out of 5 eggsR9-270A-CNFC

Pros: Good video card, Had it for just under 3 months with no problems, fan is quiet when not gaming but gets a little loud when it ramps up. Have had other xfx cards in the past always had good luck with them.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: when I first installed drivers something went wrong with the microsoft visual c++. uninstalled, then reinstalled now it works fine. I dont think it was a problem caused by xfx.

5 out of 5 eggssaaweeet!

Pros: all my games are awesome now! playing rust and minecraft at highest settings! me likey

Cons: says on xfx website that this card can do dual graphics with the a- series amd apu's? I did not find any instructions in the manual on how to do this. want to dual this thing up with my kaveri 7850k. wink, wink, nod, nod xfx dudes. feel free to explain how to do this on your reply to this review ; )

Other Thoughts: cant believe i lived this long without this product

Manufacturer Response:

http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/technologies-gaming/dual-graphics#desktop

Dual graphics only works up to the 250 series. Anything after that is actually better performance as stand alone units, CPU and GPU, instead of combined.

Thank you for the great review. If you have any quesitons, please let us know. Neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.
